Hi guys. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers! I was admitted this time on Thursday the 10th. Apparently the Fluid crossed over through the diaphragm and is now in my pleura of my left lung. Started having trouble breathing when I woke up Wednesday morning. This leak is a bugger and it is still open as of Monday the 7th. I don't remember what my other post said but I was in the 7-8th also to get me started on Tube Feedings which thankfully are fine and not bothering me. There is talk of a stent in my stomach. There is talk of a lap scope of lung cavity. Day by day. They did just give me something called tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) because the 2 chest tubes weren't doing enough fast enough I guess. I KNOW I will be going home with a PICC line this time for intense antibiotics - I have been assured by the Infectious Disease Doctor who calls himself the exterminator. He explained this is all from micro organisms in my stomach that escaped via the leak. I want to be healthy sometime soon!!

OH Libbe,

My goodness. I promised myself right before and after my surgery I would stay away from the complications board. I am so very sorry you are going through this. It was very difficult for me when last Friday I had my drain removed and I developed an abscess in my tummy area. I ended up in the ER for 10 hours overnight then stayed the night just to have another surgery where they left my cavity open and put in some growth mesh so it could heal from the inside out. I cried, how could this happen? I just wanted to be healthy this was the time I asked myself what have I done....

Hugs and prayers you get better soon. I return to the surgeon on the 28th to check my packing and make next steps.

Please let us know how you are feeling.

Sandy
